I don't really listen to too much new music, my tastes generally lay in decades past. One artist however has totally got a stranglehold on my ear drums.......Coconut Records!! Its Jason Schwartzman's solo project and its absolutely divine . Its dreamy, poppy at times, totally catchy and just evokes this distinctly California sound. He has two records out now. Nighttiming and Davy. Both are fantastic but I recommend checking out his debut record, Nighttiming, first.
